The active logging was fascinating, but I have some questions...
First, to make sure I understand the basics. An active log is a log
file produced by an application where the first item on each line
(is/can be used as a) command, so that the active log is a
How are these logs used? Are the commands in the log file executed by
the application being debugged? Are they executed by a separate
program that generates appropriate client/server-type messages?
I noticed that snapshots loomed large in the discussion. These
snapshots are a picture of the values of a script's internal variables
at a given point in its execution (right?). Are these shapshots used
by the developer to inspect the variables, sort of like looking at a
core dump? That is to say, the snapshots aren't used in some kind of
automated processing, but for people to read?
